About this release:
"Her voice, with its pure, incisive and delicate timbre, radiates tenderness while she floats her golden high notes to the limits of the audible." (Le Monde), "She sings with remarkable ease." (New York Classical Review) and "The shooting star of the opera world" (Concerti) are just a few of fantastic reviews Nadine Sierra has received so far. Celebrated for her vocal beauty and seamless technique, the American soprano is one of the most promising young operatic talents of our time. Her second solo album is called "Made for Opera" - made for opera, a title that reflects her self-image. Nadine takes on three of the most beautiful, demanding and dramatic roles of the 19th century romantic repertoire: Donizetti's Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor), Verdi's Violetta (La traviata) and Gounod's Juliette (Roméo et Juliette) are three opera heroines whose "true tragedy," as Nadine says, "is that they could not choose their own destiny. Verdi, Donizetti and Gounod have given us these wonderful women to admire, and they have captured their souls in music in a way that gives their voices new power and emphasis." Accompanied by Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI under Riccardo Frizza, Sierra brings her skills to bear in difficult roles in bravura bel canto, but also in moving drama.
